KENT, Ohio (AP) - Kent State University has suspended a wrestler for making a derogatory comment on his Twitter account about former Missouri football player Michael Sam, who announced he is gay.
 
Kent State said the suspension for Sam Wheeler was indefinite.
 
Wheeler first tweeted Monday using a homophobic slur, saying he couldn't watch a sports program because they were talking about Sam, who is an NFL prospect.
 
The 20-year-old Wheeler exchanged tweets with others who defended Sam and gays. His Twitter account was then deactivated.
 
Wrestling coach Jim Andrassy said he had talked to Wheeler, and the wrestler is "remorseful." There was no response to an attempt Wednesday to reach Wheeler by email.

Iran's FM confirms he sent Rosh Hashana tweet

   TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — An Iranian news website reports that the country's foreign minister says he sent a message on Twitter saying "Happy Rosh Hashana."

   Mohammad Javad Zarif told tasnimnews.com that he sent the message because Iran has a small Jewish community. But the message comes as Israel and Iran view each other with suspicion and contempt over Iran's nuclear program and former hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's denials that the Holocaust took place.

   Zarif also wrote on Twitter that Iran did not deny the Holocaust.

   The "Happy Rosh Hashana" message, celebrating the Jewish New Year, likely won't change international relations. But Zarif's tweet comes after officials in Iran's presidency denied that President Hasan Rouhani had a Twitter account following a tweet that appeared to be the leader offering his own Rosh Hashana message.

A threatening tweet is the reason behind a lockdown at a community college campus Wednesday.

Around 2:15 PM, school officials sent an email to students at the St. Louis Community College’s Meramec campus that said a student made a threat on twitter. The message expressed frustration over the financial aid process. The student turned herself in to the Kirkwood police.

Charges are pending against the student. The financial aid office reopened, but with an increased police presence.
